100 Auditions

Actors of Color! It’s time we took matters into our own hands. I am tired of our under-representation on stage and screen. I am tired of hearing everyone complain (me included). So let’s start a revolution, let’s start a protest. Now more than ever, due to this horrific political climate, we need to be seen […]

NYGSP “The Mikado” – Was it diverse enough?

I have so many feelings regarding this show, especially because of the yellowfacing that usually takes place with this classic Gilbert and Sullivan piece. White people playing Japanese people. If you don’t understand why that is wrong then we are going to have a problem, and you better watch your back. I have ninja stars. […]

The Whiteness of “Anna Christie”

Eugene O’Neil’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama “Anna Christie” is a play in four acts about a woman, who is a prostitute, looking for redemption and a new life with her father, who’s a captain, and a man she falls in love with. This play was recently put on by Working Barn Productions and seen on stage […]

Where’s the Diversity at Auditions?

As I sit here in the audition waiting room for an ECC (that’s equity chorus call for you nonactors), I am saddened and pissed off by what I see. Three black girls and me the one “Asian”. Where the hell are my ladies of color at? Where are my fellow Hapas (multiracial people), Asian singers, […]

Bing Box Snow Cream – East Village

In my quest to find authentic Hawaiian Snow Cones in NYC my bestie Carol took me to Bing Box in the East Village. Sadly not Hawaiian shaved ice but dare I say just as good? Granted it has been several years since my last vacay in Hawaii. Bing Box is a modern take on Korean […]

Wangs – Brooklyn

I love Wangs… Get your mind out of the gutter! Wangs is a fried chicken spot located in Brooklyn. There’s no indoor seating so you either get your Wangs to go or you eat them on a picnic bench surrounded by yellow jackets. Before you say hell no, this is so not worth the energy […]

Pho Sure – East Village

I’m obsessed with Vietnamese food right now. I don’t know why but I seriously could eat a bowl of spicy pho every single day. I’m not exaggerating either. I’m currently in SoCal right now and I’m dreaming of Pho Sure back in the East Village of NYC. My dear and wonderful friend Viet took me […]

Tulcingo – Hell’s Kitchen

New York City has some of the best food in the world. If you crave it, you probably can find it! It is one of my favorite things about this city, so many amazing foodie options. However, there is one thing NYC is missing… No not In N Out, though I would give my left […]

Hospital Food – Healing Healthy Wholesomeness? Or Fake Filled Crap?

I recently had to stay in the hospital. Don’t worry, I’m ok. Talking about my health isn’t the point of this post. The point is this, you’re admitted to the hospital due to illness. You haven’t eaten since that morning and barely at that. It’s 12 hours later and you haven’t even been given a […]

Ando – App and Contest

There’s a new way to order lunch. It’s an app called Ando, brought to you by David Chang, creator of Momofuku. I was lucky enough to try it before it goes public and I have to say, Ando serves up some damn good fried chicken. Right now Ando is only delivering to Midtown East. If […]
